Apple has a huge opportunity here. Just like it's lock on the scientific community with it's Unix OS and the apps that run on it, and the advertising artistic community with it's Final Cut software for example.

Java is a huge chance at a large chunk of Market Share. Apple needs to do an ROI calculation here. Under-investment in Java means "leaving money on the table". Not a smart management position.
